The C-Men in concert, O’Brien’s Pub (17a Mikhailivska), 27 September at 21:30
Billing themselves as Kyiv’s oldest punk band (in terms of the members’ ages), the C-Men will take the stage at ex-pat bastion O’Brien’s to play classic punk, including songs by the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, Iggy Pop and more (they’ll also throw in pop classics by the likes of ABBA, because why not?). The ex-pat-heavy band includes members from outfits like the Death Valley Screamers, Speeding Lisa and the Ukrainians. Put on your black jeans and your high-top Chuck Taylors and go pogo your brains out.

The C-Men

The C-Men is Kyiv’s new punk rock band comprised of Mick Lake (Death Valley Screamers), Blair Sheridan  and Irina Nalivaiko – both of Speeding Lisa and Dave Lee (formerly, The Ukrainians). Ukraine has a lot of great bands, but none of them seem to be playing classic punk, so The C-Men have decided to try and correct this mistake. At their upcoming gig, musicians will play The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Iggy Pop, as well as a bunch of pop classics such as ABBA in punk arrangements.
